British TV presenter PAUL O'GRADY is in serious condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack, his second in four years. The 51-year-old was taken to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent yesterday (30JUN06) complaining of severe chest pains and was rushed straight into intensive care. After a minor operation to assist blood flow he is now in a specialist cardiac unit - but is expected to make a full recovery. A source says, "He's out of intensive care but the situation is serious. He started feeling unwell in the morning." O'Grady - who found fame as drag queen comedienne LILY SAVAGE - was lucky to survive a massive cardiac arrest in 2002. He gave up smoking, but had started again after the death of his former gay partner last year (05).
